Quote of the Day

"We shall overcome."
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


I came across a trailer for an upcoming film titled "Amazing Grace", about the struggle in England to emancipate the African slaves as persons, and prohibit the slave trade.

At some point in the film, a character reminds his audience that the Bible provides that "all men are created equal".

That statement is still shockingly true today. The civil rights movement, be it in the US, Canada, or in the UK, has only achieved equality between White men, and "Coloured" men. Equality between all men and all women has yet to be achieved...

So, how about a film about the "Persons" Case?
